Once a month Saturday Masterclasses

The Masterclass Series
Saturday 27th March – Shoulder Joint health – An exploration on How to Heal (and prevent) shoulder Injuries
The shoulder joint is one of the most mobile joints in the body, but this freedom can come at a cost. Repetitive actions, such as jumping back into Chaturanga Dandasana, can cause serious injury if attention isn’t paid to how the subtle dance of the rotator cuff muscles interplay with the larger stronger deltoid and pectoral muscles.
This workshop is a targeted asana practice where we will explore how the movement of the shoulder blades, collar bones and the rotation of the arm can lead to a lifetime of injury-free practice.
Saturday 17th April

This was without doubt the best Surya Namaskar workshop I've attended - Greg N
About your teacher
Jock has been teaching since 2003 and co-founded Lime House Yoga in Cornwall with his partner Emma. His journey to yoga came after falling down a mountain snowboarding, breaking his back in several places and shattering his collarbone. After numerous unsuccessful operations he began a regular yoga practice that enabled him to heal from his injuries and astonished the medical practitioners who had tried and failed to put him back together!
He went on to train with Bridget Woods-Kramer, a world-renowned Anusara teacher with whom he spent six years studying and teaching. Over the last few years his personal practice has moved towards Ashtanga and he’s undertaken trainings with some of the worlds best teachers including David Swenson, John Scott, Richard Freeman and Manju Jois, whom he recently assisted at Stillpoint Yoga in London.
He has developed a style that is physically challenging with attention to posture and alignment and above all, playful. His experience has taught him to cherish the physical practice of yoga, but it is the connection between mind and body that inspires his practice.
